Interventional treatments allow your Las Vegas Spine & Pain Center provider to alleviate pain originating from any part of your body, whether you struggle with back, neck, abdominal, limb, or joint pain.

What interventional pain management treatments might I receive?

Las Vegas Spine & Pain Center takes a comprehensive approach when managing pain, often combining interventional treatments with other options like physical therapy to ensure you have optimal pain relief.

Interventional treatments precisely target one or more nerves. These therapies take three approaches. Your treatment may:

Reduce nerve inflammation

A steroid injection dramatically reduces inflammation, easing pain caused by swollen nerves. The team often injects steroids into joints and the epidural space along your spine (epidural steroid injection).

Block pain signals

Sensory nerves throughout your body pick up pain signals and carry them to your brain. Blocking those nerve messages prevents your brain from getting the message, so you don’t feel the full force of the pain.

Interventional pain management techniques that block nerve transmission include:

  • Selective nerve root blocks
  • Medial branch block
  • Facet joint injections
  • Sympathetic nerve blocks
  • Stellate ganglion block
  • Hypogastric plexus block
  • Spinal cord stimulation
  • Radiofrequency ablation
  • Occipital nerve blocks

This list isn’t comprehensive; the team performs many other interventional procedures.

Repair spine problems

When you still have spine pain despite interventional treatments, Las Vegas Spine & Pain Center may recommend a minimally invasive procedure to repair the underlying problem.

Examples include performing vertebroplasty or kyphoplasty to treat spinal compression fractures and implanting the Vertiflex® interspinous spacer device to decompress pinched spinal nerves.
